  1. 1. INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS TABLES PROGRAMS ELIGIBLE FOR ACCREDITATION AND PROGRAMS ACCREDITED Applicable to four- and two-year institutions Due August 1, 2007 This form includes a list of accrediting bodies for which one or more academic programs are currently accreditable in a South Carolina institution as reported on U.S. Department of Education FORM IPEDS-1C-1 (6-1-94) and/or have been approved by the Commission on Higher Education. According to Section 59-101-350, the Commission is responsible for collecting “the number and percentage of accredited programs and the number and percentage of programs eligible for accreditation” from four- and two-year post-secondary institutions to be included in the annual report to the General Assembly. The Commission on Higher Education also uses this information as a base to fulfill requirements in Section 59-103-30 for performance funding to collect information on Instructional Quality by looking at the accreditation of degree-granting programs. If your institution offers one or more programs listed in the Commission’s current Inventory of Academic Degree Programs (http://connect.che.sc.gov/AS400/Inven/Default.asp) that is accreditable by one or more of the following agencies, you should complete the columns in the table that follows by placing an “x” in the box. For those agencies that accredit individual programs within departments, please put the number of programs in parentheses beside the “x”. An accreditable program is one that is eligible for accreditation, regardless of whether or not the institution chooses to pursue accreditation. An accredited program is one that has been granted full accreditation status by the appropriate accrediting agency. The addition or deletion of an agency from this list is a prescribed process, administered through the Commission’s Academic Affairs Division. If an agency is added to this list the date that it is added dictates when an accreditable program should be counted “against” the institution with regard to its full accreditation. The most recent agencies that have been added to the list have their corresponding dates listed so that institutions can better calculate the time frame for accreditation. Any agencies that appear on the list without a corresponding date should be understood to have appeared prior to May 1998. For a complete set of policies and procedures regarding this process, see the Commission’s website at: http://www.che400.state.sc.us/AcademicAffairs/Accreditation%20Guidelines.doc.

The Commission will use previously-reported CHEMIS information for data in this table. Institutions will have an opportunity to proof this information prior to the publication of the January 2008 report. Faculty definition will be any faculty, staff or graduate assistant who teach a credit course. SUCCESS OF STUDENTS IN DEVELOPMENTAL COURSES Four-Year Colleges and Universities no longer offer these courses, therefore this table has been deleted.

The numbers included here should reflect the graduate and upper division undergraduate students who participate in sponsored research programs. Each institution that receives research dollars generated by external funding (sponsored research) should report the number of students who benefit from these dollars. The CHE will calculate the percentage using these data and headcount enrollment data from the Fall 2006 IPEDS Enrollment Forms.

  10. 10. Institution: RESULTS OF PROFESSIONAL EXAMINATIONS Applicable to all sectors – Reported for April 1, 2005-March 31, 2006 According to Section 59-101-350, the Commission is responsible for collecting “student scores on professional examinations with detailed information on state and national means, passing scores, and pass rates, as available, and with information on such scores over time, and the number of students taking each exam” from four- and two-year institutions to be included in the annual report to the General Assembly. The Commission on Higher Education also uses this information as the primary source with which to fulfill requirements in Section 59-103-30 for performance funding to collect information on Instructional Quality and Graduates’ Achievements by looking at the scores of graduates on post-undergraduate professional, graduate, or employment-related examinations and certification tests. Past committee work and the development of performance funding have defined the collection of this information to include only first-time test takers (except the teacher education exams at four-year institutions, which include all test takers) for those students who completed an examination during the period of April 1, 2006 through March 31, 2007. The following list displays the exams that each sector has reported in the past. Please use this list as a guide for the exams you report this year on the table provided. Please be aware that your institution may have students taking certification exams that have not been reported on in the past. This would be the case if students were just beginning to complete a new program. The Commission will request national and state pass rates and any additional information for these examinations, as it is available, from national and state agencies to be used in the report to the General Assembly. These national and state agencies can be found in “A Closer Look.” Beginning this year, Praxis exams are reported in a separate table. Please note that Praxis results are reported on all test-takers. Other exams are reported on first-time test-takers.
